Having given up trying the MS route, could anyone help me with this oddity?
I have the simplest of networks - 1 XP laptop, and 1 Redhat 7.1 PC with
either a cross-over cable or **dumb** hub between.
- Addressing, etc. is correct
- Network cables, etc all checked
tcpdump on Redhat sees traffic from both machines, but the Redhat machine
never responds to requests from the XP machine.
The XP machine responds to requests from the Redhat machine - tcpdumps sees
it, but ping, telnet, etc ignore it.
The only oddity I can see is that the packets from XP all claim they are in
801.1Q VLAN#0. There is no reference to VLAN's anywhere I've found on MS.
I'd love to get rid of MS altogether but unfortunately its a prototype for a
commercial project where MS clients are unavoidable.
